What is breast cancer screening?
Screening is a procedure that allows doctors to detect breast cancer while it is still in its infancy and is therefore easier to treat.
It includes an x-ray examination – called a mammogram – to check for signs of cancer that are too small to see or feel.
Mammograms will be sent to the woman and her general practitioner within two weeks. About 5% will be called back for further inspection.
It is used to look for signs of breast cancer in women who don’t have any symptoms or problems with the breast.
A mammogram can also be used to look at a woman’s breast if she has symptoms in the breast or if she sees a change in the mammograms.
When used in this way, they are called diagnostic mammograms. These may include extra (imaging) views of the breast that are not part of the mammogram.
A mammogram is an X-ray test that aims to detect breast cancer early when it is too young to be seen or touched.
In the United States, according to the American Cancer Society, ‘women aged 40 to 44 should have the option of starting annual breast cancer screening with a mammogram.
‘Women aged 45 to 54 should have mammograms every year. Women 55 and older should switch to a mammogram every 2 years, or can continue to have the screening every year. ”
Women 55 and older should switch to a mammogram every 2 years, or can continue to have the screening every year.
In the UK, according to the NHS, all women aged 50-71 who are registered with a general practitioner are invited to be screened for breast cancer every 3 years.
